What You Will Learn

As the technology for managing, processing and analyzing data matures, we have the ability to combine many types of data to build a holistic view of our operations and facilities. Break down the silos between your existing data -- stored in ERP and WMS systems, SCADA systems, CMMS systems -- and combine IOT sensor technology to get access to even more data. Having universal access and constructing the links across previously disconnected information is the foundation for measuring and improving your overall logistics effectiveness. Increase labor productivity, increase automation throughput, reduce equipment downtime and maintenance wrench time, and extend the life of your facilities as your business scales. Use real-time alerts to take immediate action on operational or equipment issues, look at daily and historical trends to adjust your optimize your operations, and use predictive algorithms to maintain equipment before it breaks. Use the power of data to stay lean (remove waste) and agile (respond to business changes).
 

Key Takeaways

- Data platforms have matured to enable us to access and combine multiple data sources to get a complete view
- A broader approach is needed to unite order fulfillment and facility lifecycle management to holistically enhance labor, automation, equipment and maintenance performance
- Overall Logistics Effectiveness is a way to benchmark and improve warehouse productivity
- Start small with targeted focus areas, and then increase breadth over time
